"Universal Literacy: The Digital Age Engages the Learning Brain"
Dominic Massaro, Research Professor, Psychology, UC Santa Cruz
Society faces increasing challenges in the ability to support the infrastructure of a literate society. Virtual teachers, the internet, and the ceaseless access to information hold promise. To date, however, these potential solutions do not consider the learning brain. This talk illustrates how universal literacy can be achieved with minimal cost, allowing a revolutionary new age that challenges the survival of our educational institutions and society as we know them.
